Adobe TV Launched for Education and Inspiration

The new video resource includes original content, as well as segments from training firms and product experts.

While there has long been video-related training and tips available from third-party sources covering the Creative Suite, Adobe has now provided a single point of contact for this in the form of the Adobe TV site, coupled with its own programming. The result is a video-driven destination geared to designers, photographers, video professionals and developers. In the words of Bob Donlon, executive producer, “Adobe TV is the online video source for anyone who wants to see how Adobe tools are being used to create stunning work.”

Content on the Adobe TV site is provided in four channels, each featuring programming from Adobe evangelists, trainers, experts, and "luminaries who pull in the crowds at industry events around the world." More than 200 videos are available at launch, with the initial titles providing Photoshop tips, podcasts and design tips for Creative Suite, Photoshop Lightroom techniques, Flash Professional instruction for beginners, website creation workflow guidance, and information about video and audio production.

The Flash-based site can be accessed with any browser and contains a community element that lets visitors sort videos by various criteria, as well as rate, share and embed them in blogs or web sites. Not uncoincidentally, the videos can also be accessed via Adobe Media Player, availability of which was announced today. The Player allows users to watch programs at their convenience, save content for offline viewing and subscribe to favorite channels.
